Elways has been on a below-average run as a drafting GM. See examples OL Garrett Bolles & QB Paxton Lynch. Although, last season was a shining spot for the best and longest tenured QB in Denver history, fans still need and want more. Two years ago it...

    Week 10 in the NFL has come and gone.  Without question, Week 10 in the NFL was the best week of action the NFL has seen all season.  A month of preseason football and 10 weeks of regular season football (almost four months) later and we’ve finally had a full slate of watchable games.  The afternoon and evening games alone contained two games in which there were seven lead changes.  Yet, up until this point, the NFL games...

Nothing in the future is guaranteed and I think we can all agree on that point. Dictionary.com states the definition of the word “future” as “a condition, especially of success OR failure, to come.” First round talent, as we will...
